Skills Competition Overview

The Team Skills Competition will require 12 of your players for 3 different events (most teams do not have 12 players so some will have to compete twice).   

*No player can compete more than once for your team unless you have fewer than 12 players.  In that case a player may have to compete twice, but NOT three times. 

*If you have more than 12 players, coaches will have to choose who to sit out. 

Coaches need to choose players for the following events: 

1)       8  players to compete in the full court cone dribbling/lay up challenge

2)       3 shooters to compete in a team hot-shot shooting challenge

3)       1 shooter to compete in a free throw game we call “Five in the Bucket”

Full Court Cone Dribbling/Lay Up Challenge

Two teams will face off head to head in a relay type event.  The first player from each team must dribble through the cones to the other end of the court, turn around and speed dribble back to their basket where they are to make a lay up.  If they miss, they must rebound their ball and keep shooting until they make it.  Once the basket is made the first player passes the ball to the second player in the line. The drill is repeated until the 8th player has made their basket.  Times will be kept and the top 2 teams will move on to a head to head championship.  

Five in the Bucket

Each team will be represented by 1 free throw shooter.  The shooters from each team ALL line up at the free throw line.  The first player shoots and if he makes it there is “1 in the bucket”.  If the second player makes his shot there are now “two in the bucket”.  If the third player misses his shot then he collects all of the points that are in the bucket (in this case 2 points).  YOU DO NOT WANT POINTS.  After you shoot your shot you go to the back of the line and the game continues.  If the player in front of you misses his shot then the next shooter basically has a free shot since there would then be “zero in the bucket”.  When a player has collected 5 total points they are out.   The last player standing wins!

Team Hot Shot Challenge

Each team is allowed 3 shooters, 3 balls, and 3 rebounders. Only the 3 shooters count as participants in this event.  The rebounders can be anyone on your team. 

There are 3 spots on the floor: 

1-3pt from the 45 (Boys only, girls will move in 3 feet and NOT shoot 3s)

2-the elbow

3-the baseline  

Shooters have 1 minute to make as many shots as they can.  Each made basket is worth 1 point.  2 teams participate at the same time at the opposite ends of the court.  Scores will be kept and the top 2 teams will move on to a head to head championship.
